SOPA & PIPA

Typically I’ve tried to keep everything on this blog work related, but for once I felt an exception was in order:

As much as I enjoy fictional dystopias in cyberpunk writing, comics and film, I’d rather we didn’t see a real one come to pass in the next few years. The internet may have become an enormous conduit for piracy, trolling and general ignorance but it’s also allowed an enormous hive of creativity to develop that’s thankfully not monopolized just by the corporate fat cats, something we can kiss goodbye if bills like these go through.

Seriously, tell everyone you know about it. Don’t let these idiots disguise digital fascism behind four innocuous letters.

EDIT: Truly delicious irony, I had to reupload the link because the original video was taken down for copyright infringement -_-
